Streamline Cable Infrastructure Management with Symphonica

Support multi-level orchestration of network elements over network infrastructure

Implementation of Symphonica’s Infrastructure Management

Symphonica’s Infrastructure Management use case provides MSOs with a powerful tool for managing network elements and enabling multi-level orchestration of network elements over both virtual and physical infrastructure. This is particularly important for cable operators increasingly relying on virtualization to achieve greater network flexibility, scalability, and cost-efficiency.

The platform enables cable operators to manage their networks holistically, supporting end-to-end orchestration of network elements from the core to the edge. This includes orchestrating virtual network functions (VNFs), network services, and physical network infrastructure. In addition, the platform provides a comprehensive network view, enabling operators to identify and resolve issues and optimize performance quickly.

Symphonica Orchestration Platform

Cable operators can implement Symphonica’s Infrastructure Management use case to their operations to support multi-level orchestration of network elements over a virtual network infrastructure as well as a physical infrastructure.

Benefits of Symphonica's Infrastructure Management solution

  • RPDs per service Group and DPIC
  • STB counts
  • Max. device counts on external devices
  • HSI data utilization

Mobile App

Technicians can run a bottom up-provisioning flow in the field scanning barcodes with our mobile app.

  • RPD provisioning
  • Validate the environmental values
  • Generate a birth certificate with the information of the environmental variables obtained from the RPD.
  • App will also support use cases such as change of equipment and maintenance tasks.

With Symphonica’s Infrastructure Management, the possibilities are endless

  • Service orders related to the fulfillment are managed by a No-Code multi-service orchestrator.
  • An active inventory of the implemented elements.
  • Interaction with operational tools of the MSO for functionalities such as firmware management to ensure healthy operations.
  • Enables bottom-up provisioning, including validation of installation parameters and generation of a birth certificate for the RPDs.
  • Access to monitoring and telemetry data to external platforms via standard APIs.
  • Monitoring and telemetry capabilities for RPD events to trigger maintenance or dynamic changes in the network.
  • Supports design-time and run-time to the Engineering group during migration to DAA.
  • Rule engine to find the best fit for the RPDs being provisioned according to the resources available in the CCAP and based on the defined limitations.
